    Beater/no worries - CRKT M21 (Got this when I was in high school and it's taken quite the beating)

    Guilty pleasure - Gerber RipStop (My first knife, it's a nostalgia thing I guess. Plus I added serrations to it myself, and it just works for me. I could EDC it every day of my life and need a different knife maybe once or twice a month, but well, that wouldn't be very interesting now would it :p)

    No worries: Esse izula
    Edc: BHK bushbaby
    Dressy: Buck 110t, keep the bolsters shiny.
    Big/fun: Swamp rat Rodent solution
    Fixed blade: Bushbaby, she's almost perfect :)
    Guilty pleasure: still working on that, but a sebenza in the near future looks possible
    Hunting/fishing: gotta go with the swamp rat, crazy sharp edge and the coating means less steel to clean
    In short, need more knives!

    Beater/no worries Pendleton Lite. I've done everything possible to it that a knife could realistically be needed for, and it's still in great shape.

    EDC favorite Either my modded Leek (cut the blade an inch shorter and rounded it off into a stubby wharnecliff) or my customized Tenacious (black knife with blue scales swapped onto it.)

    Dressy Only thing that comes close is my Kershaw Crown. Stainless & black Micarta make a fancy combo. :)

    "I don't care if it's too big or scary right now" or "just for fun" CS Spartan.

    Fixed blade favorite my Khukuri :D

    Guilty pleasure ZT0350. It's an addictive flipper...

    Hunting/fishing/trapping Probably my Pendleton again. It takes a great edge and is easy to sharpen up again when (not if - hunting uses dull a knife, lets just accept that fact) it gets dull.
